Surrealist Playing Cards
These are cool.  The first set of cards was designed by the members of the Surrealist Movement in Marseille in the 1940s. Other decks on the site are based on the works of Salvador Dali and Paul Delvaux.

"The deck was conceived in Marseille during a meeting of the surrealist group. The designs for the deck were made by eight artists from the group. Each made the designs for 2 court cards (including the aces). The artists were Victor Brauner, André Breton, Oscar Dominguez, Max Ernst, Jacques Hérold, Wilfredo Lam, Jacqueline Lamba and André Masson."
